Does Anybody on this forum know exactly where i can download- #Multimedia Audio Controller driver @ cost 2 me ..... I currently (still) have this issue about.... "No Sound/Audio" for my p/c -Acer4100...

Windows 7 or Windows XP? In either case, here's the US source, just type in Travelmate 4100 under "Product Model" and it will pull up the list of XP drivers. If you need Windows 7 drivers they should be the included ones with the OS, otherwise, on that same page, you can click on the line "need to know the hardware in your system to choose the right drivers?" download the "HWVendorDetection.exe" software, fid=nd out what "chipset" from intel you have, install that driver and then get the audio driver.

Try going to the Acer website, and look for support/download.

Realtek drivers are what you want.

Can't remember the exact name but it will be there.
